Drove further North into the depths of the Kingdom.....Got a great grinder in Craftsbury and went into a dream.....of green.....Rounded hills of 300-1000 feet of possible great skiing....In Albany off toward Parker pond the roads got bumpier....the gravel full of ruts.....Drifted by one of the kingdoms Senators or Rep. had a huge field of Hemp....then into total oblivion of total serious green and a twisting one lane road that poses as a double....Near Barton came down from the heights and finally got to the Barton Golf Course and had a totally one person round....Nobody in front....nobody in back.....At the top of the course couple hundred up....remembered Telekid and I hearing many leaf caressing feet of the Coyotes checking us out.....Back in the car....drifted down from Barton into the "Way back gravel roads"....again seeing potential wonderful short runs....Blue skies....green everything....even first cut.....down through North Greensboro to Telekings place for some horseshoes and a wicked hot sauna.....We almost always get a few shots in October....can't wait....TM

Cruising back from Franconia Notch......yesterday morning.....saw 52o......Getting there.....Saw three bears on the Mittersell trails.....and some not knowing people trying to get close....the bear ran off with it's two cubs close behind......Smart bear!.....Does anyone know if Mittersell has a separate lift ticket?....And can one get a one trip ticket up the Gondola?......Wouldn't mind doing Tucker Brook again.....TM

Drinking, smoking, and playing golf hasn't kept my conditioning up. Can't wait to start waxing up our favorite zones. A few short months and skis will be sliding again!!

just thinking...in August.....my e109's showed with less than a year of skiing on them.....that the HOLE they put in the ski.....for inserting skins.....couldn't get the job done...Broken wimpy plastic junk.....So now I have a ski with a broken hole....Wonder if it will shoot a snow spray....that would be cool....Thinking it was when I was up on Wheelock Mountain on the East south east side.....Cliffs here....all kinds of thingers....Logging roads...dead horizontal trees....open hardwoods.....Openings that want to be skied....Down to Sheffield.....Need a car there and it could be a decent ski....Miles....See if the Boys want to crash and bash down that side....Will see....TM
